of the big activities was the defense spending bill. what is the headlines coming out of that discussion? guest: the headline has to do with the national security agency. it was a very close vote. it shows how divided the house -200epresentatives, 217 five, to keep allowing the nsa to collect telephone records. host: explain it to those that are not following it closely. many: i don't imagine too people do not understand it. this is the national security agency that was found to be collecting phone calls. they are randomly collecting phone calls under court orders from a secret court. certainly a lot of people do not want to be listened to. this was all covered by edward snowden, now sitting in the moscow airport. to stop a vote to try this practice, which was authorized by congress as part of the patriot act after 9/11. host: the amendment did not survive? guest: it did not survive. it does not explain how that would happen. host: who supported this amendment and who opposed it? we saw a lot of things that you probably did not see before. we have liberal democrats who did not like the g
of defense and the secretaries of all of the armed forces groups, got together to honor the veterans of the korean war. it was a sight to see so many korean veterans from so many different parts of the country. and they were reminded by our president that we had been labeled as those who participated in what was referred to as the forgotten war. because most all of the world knew about the importance of america being involved in saving emocracy in world war ii and vietnam. good or bad, people knew people that went there. but somehow in the middle of that, no one really missed us or knew where korea was or didn't appear that there was too much concern. d when we did return, unlike the vietnam veterans who really unfairly had been treated so unkind, fortunately for us, we were never missed except by our family and friends, people never they here we were and to us. weren't as kind veterans turned out from all over. comrades that were part of the 20 countries that were part of the united nations. and when north koreans invaded south korea, those of us who were called to go to south korea
as assistant secretary of defense for international security policy and deputy assistant secretary for nuclear forces and arms control policy. he received a bachelor's degree from georgetown and a masters in international study from johns hopkins school of advanced international studies. the floor is yours. served in this body for senator jackson, who many of you had a non-and memorable memory of, i'm sure. >> i recognize i am in the distinct minority on this panel, but i take comfort that i represent the vast majority of americans and certainly the vast majority of those of you in congress on this question. should gitmo be closed? the answer is resoundingly no there is a- unless better alternative available. i would like to put this into context if i may. it is to explain why we have gitmo in the first place. it is because we are at war. is seemingly lost on a lot of us as we talk about this in an abstract context. removed fromhow be this overarching problem. we are not just at warp. we are at war because others attacked us and, in your wisdom wisdom, and the congress you gave the to fight ba
by political asylum. there is a complete defense for whistle blowers to criminality. think about it. the people who expose the milan massac massacre, should they have been prosecuted. auschwitz, should that person have been prosecuted? >> david, i'd love to get your thoughts on this. the debate over whether or not lives have been harmed is still very a raging debate. a lot of people would argue the other side of that. >> one thing that bradley manning did was he didn't leak documents on a given one of these things, you know, that michael just went through was a major dump that had what some people depending where they sit, good leaks and bad leaks. to me, it's very troubling that he would be prosecuted under the espionage act even though he was let off on the aiding and abetting the enemy, which i thought was ridiculous, is this really espionage. if you look at the washington post, they have a great chart this morning, 20 odd different counts. michael i'm sure is familiar with all of them. only a few espionage. there were others about leaking classified information, violating regulations, thing
thing you can do for a case is age it, but in this case the defense is pushing for the probable cause hearing to happen while the prosecutors want to build their case. the judge allowed the prosecutors to keep the case continuing. aaron hernandez was not saying so much, but listen to what he had to say when he did have an opportunity to speak. >> this is a place that not only did it change my future from them paying me, but it changed me as a person. you can't come here and act reckless and do your own stuff. i came here acting the way i wanted to act but you get changed by the patriot way. now that i'm a patriot i'm living like one and making the right decisions for them. >> cenk: all right apparently not. now that was his comments on the patriots. i want to get back to that in a second. i want to get back to how he has deflated as you mentioned his appearance in a second. first i have a legal question for you robin. as i started to look through the evidence. we talked about this case and all the different cases that involved aaron hernan hernandez and there is evidence floating arou
of eisenhower, bush. i mean, we are a party of national defense. we're a party who did so much to protect the country over the last 12 years. >> where's the real republican party? which one of those? where's the real republican party? >> i think we're going to find that out over the next three years. i want the republican party to be a party of strong national defense and a party who, for instance, can reach out to labor unions, construction unions, police officers, firefighters -- these are people who are socially conservative and want to agree with us, and so many people in our party drive them away. to me, the overriding concern has to be national defense, national security, and not be apologizing for america. when you have rand paul actually comparing snowden to martin luther king or henry david thoreau, this is madness, this is the anti-war democrats in the 1960s that destroyed their party for almost 15 years. i don't want that happening to our party. >> there have been two statements made by republicans. one is that, if congress does not pass some kind of major immigration reform, i
in a strong national defense, how do you have enough funding? i'm willing to cut entire departments. my problem with some of the more liberal members of the republican party is, they're not willing to cut spending other places in order to preserve national defense. >> joining me now is robert george, editorial writer for new york post, josh barrel and tim carnie, senior political columnist for the washington examiner. visiting fellow at the enterprise institute. you're team paul in this one, i take it? what do you think -- why do you think this is a good fight for the republicans to have? i sense you do think it is. and why is paul the one that you're backing, that you feel speaks for the party the best. >> first let me say i do not accept rand paul's premise that eating bacon makes you gain weights, i think it's the carbs. in the foreign policy realm, what we need and in the national security realm, as far as nsa, spying and the great stuff that you and glenn were talking about earlier, what we need is a robust debate and there hasn't been that in the republican party for a long time.
of the defense spending bill. is live at journal" 7:00 a.m. several leather vents to tell about today. beginning with the politico for mommy health insurance exchanges. that is on c-span2 after 8:00 a.m. eastern. on c-span3, the senate homeland security considers the nomination of the director of u.s. citizenship and immigration services. later on c-span3, a senate energy and national -- natural resources subcommittee holds meeting on water infrastructure. that is that's 2:30 p.m. eastern. >> i think that the korean war in a sense sort of helped the -- unify themselves in a way that was not there before. when the communists came down, they were brutal. a lot of the south koreans turned against the communists in the north. that sort of solidified their sense of national cohesion and identity. but i think they meant scapula because having waited, it is for a possible that the south probably would have disintegrated on its own. >> six years after north korean troops crossed the 30th parallel, sheila miyoshi jage looks at a war that never even ended. part of book tv on c-span2. a $512se has approved
of national defense. >> michael: nsa surveillance has become a key issue in the ongoing role that has em-boldened libertarians and tea partiers alike. >> this strain of libertarianism that is going through both parties right now, and making big headlines, i think is a very dangerous thought. these intellectual debates, i want them to come to new jersey and sit across from the widows and orphans and have that conversation, and -- and they won't, because that's a much tougher conversation to have. >> michael: both parties? it's going through both parties? really. he joined king in calling out rand paul. he said his views put the country at risk of future terrorist attacks. to which paul responded . . . yes, heaven forbid senator paul that we waste time and money help those who lost everything in a natural disaster. i don't like to agree with any republicans, but in this case chris christie is definitely the lesser of these two evils. joining us from d.c. is friend of "the war room," friend of mine, bill press of current tv's own "full court press." great to have you here as always. >> good
to go with this last line of defense of just before somebody gets on that aircraft, are we going to start screening them, and there's always a chance they're going to miss something. i think we should be investing more in who's buying the tickets, who were the bad folks out there and let's invest more on the intelligence side rather than the last second trying to catch 'em side. >> there is this pre-check thing. are you involved with that? >> yes. >> i have that. i don't know how i got it but i'm pre-checked so i don't have to take my shoes off and i don't have to take stuff out of my bag and all that. i don't know why i don't have to. i don't understand why, how that works or why i'm less of a danger than anybody else because i feel dangerous. >> well you must be a favorite of tsa already, shep. >> i'm sure i am, very supportive. >> tsa is going to roll out a program in the fall about tsa act t simplifies things tremendously. the line you're going in is shorter, you don't have to take off your shoes, moves more efficiently so definitely try and get in there if you can. >> it's a
enrollment fees the house armed services committee, of which i'm a member, and other defense committees have declined to grant the authority for these fee increases. my amendment would do nothing more than ensure that the fund in this fact are not made available to implement any new enrollment fees in the tricare for life program. year after year we hear from the defense department that health care costs of our soldiers and veterans are spiraling out of control and tricare is crippling the d.o.d. with its rising costs yet for the past two dwhreerks pentagon has found a way to reprogram hundreds of millions of dollars from defense health accounts to higher priorities. these reprogramming actions totaled $70 million last career in 2012, and $500 million in the -- in the prior year in 2011. explained that the surplus was due to uncertainty about medical installation and health care use and the impact of continual benefit changes and efficiency initiatives. if there is uncertainty about costs, the assertion cannot be made that added fees are necessary for even our most senior veterans. d.o.d.'s
the house of representatives has just passed a defense appropriations bill the legislation includes an amendment to bar it military action in egypt and of course, the war powers act if the president chooses to engage in syria. the $512 million defense spending bill passed 315 / 100 highberger joining us now is the time. great to have you here. so i could say this did it how bad of an idea is it from this president's political standpoint? >> nnouncing the huge speech with the economy is a void of any ideas or principles or policies what the president wants to a variance of was was a speech in illinois and those that will support him no matter what your fox news poll reflects that, he has lost in the middle of the road people but he has also lost a good percentage of his base those that support the president the most, the president's plate game is alive and well and will not play well in 2013 andlou: are ye president chose to do this? that look most peculiar to see a president at the beginning of his second term looking like he was on the campaign trail to talk exactly that way. >> i
on c-span's "q & a." houset, some of the debate on two amendments for the defense spending bill that deals with nsa data collection programs. this is about 40 minutes. >> thank you, mr. chairman. the amendment i offer this evening clarifies and confirms the scope of two programs that mr. snowden illegally exposed while sitting in a hotel room in communist china. under section 702, no u.s. citizen in the u.s. can be targeted. i say again, no u.s. person to be targeted in any way by the united states government. while their other authorities, the u.s. person may be subject to an investigation, the u.s. government may not do so under section 702. that is this amendment. the second part of the amendment clarifies section 215, known as the section 501 of fisa. that is no record of the actual conversation of the content that is recorded or collected by the national security agency. the nsa has not been acting outside of its authority. the metadata program is carefully designed with program layers of oversight by all three branches of government. this is precisely where our government
and disadvantaged. and it's hoped such a message may prove more attractive than the defensiveness that prevailed in the wake of repeated vatican scandals, both financial and sexual. in rio, we found new yorker ariana drauch who credited the pope with re-energizing the faithful. >> i think the pope has a great head on his shoulders and he definitely -- he knows what he's talking about. >> reporter: dean reynolds de janeiro, cbs news. >>> time now for headlines. for that to happen the stock would have to trip until value. >> "the washington post" says the cia is winding down operations in afghanistan. the spy agency plans to cut the number of its clandestine bases in afghanistan in half. >> the "los angeles times" look at apple third quarter earnings. the company beat predictions. also set a record for the number of iphones sold. the news sent shares higher in after hours trading. >> "the boston globe" said a grand jury is hearing emd on whether aaron hernandez should be charged in the shooting death of two men in 2012. he is due in court today for the murder of another man
veteran's eyewitness account. followed live at 10 as president obama and defense secretary chuck hagel h2b out the korean war memorial to americans who served. american history tv every weekend on c-span3. >> house insurance committee chairman mike rogers warns that cyber espionage is the biggest national security threat america isn't quite ready to handle. his comments came during an event at the international institute for strategic studies. this is the 45 minutes. >> introducing congressman mike rogers. i'm steven simon from the executor after of iiss as the u.s. welcome to the iiss as u.s. can you hear me now? deafening. i'm executive director at iiss as u.s. i'm introducing understand mike r executive director at iiss as u.s. i'm introducing understand mike rogers, and with a great deal of pleasure. congress and rogers was elected to congress in 2000 that he came to congress from an unusual background. defense and law enforcement but he was an army officer and the fbi special agent before coming to the u.s. congress. he now has a very important and pivotal role in the house as chairma
on the same day congress was debating the defense authorization bill and an amendment that would block all u.s. aid to egypt. >> we are reviewing our obligations under the law and are consulting with congress about the way forward. given the current situation in egypt, we do not believe it is appropriate to move forward with the delivery of f-16s at this time. >> reporter: u.s. official sources tell fox that the egyptian military's not all that worried about not receiving those f-16s at this point in time. they believe that eventually something will be worked out and that those f-16s will be delivered. rick: okay. so what about reaction from the egyptian military? >> reporter: well, the egyptian army is calling for nationwide protests in egypt tomorrow to counter the demonstrations staged by the muslim brotherhood of late which is pushing for the release of president morsi whose family claims that he was kidnapped by the army. there's no word where president morsi is at this time. egyptian opposition groups have criticized the administration's wishy washy approach to the situation. >> i feel
a case that they are going to go forward with and it is going to be very difficult for the defense to counter that. of course, the way the defense always corrects that is to say hey, listen, you got a deal. you are really the bad guy. you made a deal in order to exculpate yourself from some kind of criminal responsibility, criminal liability. this case is very early now. this is moving very quickly. there is going to be a lot of procedural process that happens. this grand jury indictment probably is going to move the case right to trial. but i wouldn't expect to see a trial in this case for many months to come. >> ortiz is particularly interesting in this case because he is the co-defendant that's come forward and said that another co-defendant involved actually told him hernandez is the individual that actually shot the gun and killed odin llyod. his testimony will be particularly crucial in this case. you could see him coming forward and testifying in the hearing. hearsay is allowed. >> we will have to wait ask see what happens. thank you. we will discuss other legal cases later
in a minute. here's my general question. should the united states be primarily concerned with its own defense? do we have to be careful we don't get invaded and two days later say somebody says if we'd only done one thing because we're concerned about civil liberties. >> if you come out what looks to be an argument and you didn't use that power, you're dead politically in this country if you get attacked. >> chris, i worked 20 feet from the oval office for years and i saw the president the national security team grapple with a very real threat of attack. and the tools that are there that the nsa provided were important in thwarting some of those attacks. if we hadn't done it, then we would indeed have had more catastrophic kinds of attacks. i think people would have been outraged about it we have to be careful how we do that, and what the president suggested is that's why we have to have the involvement of all three branches of government. the answer is not to scrap the intelligence gathering that has demonstrably helped keep the american people safer. >> i don't like this. >> trisha: i'm not
priorities in order to fund defense. that's unacceptable. he won't sign that. the across-the-board cuts are hurting our future. >> fair enough, but the process in washington over continuing to fund the government or raising the debt ceiling is necessary lay process that has to be engaged in. i guess what i'm asking is, is the president, unlike what he's done before signaling, he will go to the brink this time in order to stop cuts that he thinks will harm the economy? >> what the president did this week is he sent a very clear message that washington has to stop playing these brinksmanship games. it's not about who wins and who loses -- >> but this report, mr. secretary, indicates indeed the white house is setting itself on a position to go to the brink, to force republicans -- >> what we have said is congress needs to get its work done and needs to fund the kinds of things the american middle class need, and we need to get the debt limit extended in a way that doesn't create a crisis. that is what every congress needs to do, and congress needs to do it when it gets back in september. >
. the defense claims bradley manning was a naive whistleblower and some call him a hero who never meant to hurt the united states. officials say the sentencing hearing could take at least three weeks. we're not crying wolf here. so says the defense secretary chuck hagel. but today he laid out some tough warnings about how the next round of looming spending cuts could dramatically hurt the pentagon's ability to do its job. >> if these abrupt cuts remain, we risk fielding a force that over the next few years sun prepared, due to a lack of training, maintenance, and the latest equipment. >> shepard: secretary hagel says among other changes the fewer aircraft available. cut several air squad drons and the army may need to reduce troop numbers to numbers we have not seen since world war ii. again, this is from the defense secretary. we cannot confirm. budget cuts are set to take effect early next year unless lawmakers can agree to some sort of solution. president obama paid a visit to capitol hill today for the first time since march, they tell us. back then, he met with members of both parties, tod
. it is not speaker boehner. it is because president obama, secretary kerry and the department of defense. they are the ones that are slow-walking this. i wish i could wrap it up and look everyone of those families in the eye, this is what happened, this is what was wrong, this is how the administration botched this but i can't do so until i get the administration to fest up and provide us the documents. but i will credit speaker boehner lately to actually providing the subpoenas needed to drag people in there we had classified hearings. we, as we go into the fall will have a series of open hearings where the world will be able to see us question these people. we doesn't need a select committee to do any of. we can do it within the committees and that's what we're doing. bill: jason chaffetz, the republican from utah. we'll talk soon. >> thank you. bill: martha. martha: first it was a saturday mail delivery they took away but could home delivery all together become a thing of the past? can you imagine life like that? a closer look at a controversial plan to help the postal service balance
defenses, don't you think this is something that we can pour not only in defense but other areas as well? i believe it is. texas can switch to a p.b.m. contract. this is no chump change. y time draws to a close, the challenges facing independent and community pharmacist are great, but the important roles they play are greater. it is where we can look forward to solutions that matter. i did not come to washington, d.c. simply to watch things happen and to wonder why. i came to be part of the solution. like you, mr. speaker, we are part of the freshman class believing that this is the place that people look for to make this country continually the greatest country on earth. and the way they do that is look at commonsense legislation. they look at commonsense solutions that affect them every day. for many, many people. and especially in my home of northeast georgia. place.harmacies is a they are the places where senior citizens come and as i have watched many times the pharmacies where i go to, my own or not, it is the pharmacies where i watched the other day, where i went in and a sweet littl
's defense of her husband will help resurrect her political career. this morning the "new york times" and "new york daily news" are calling for weaner to withdraw. several other candidates say he's unfit for office. he's made it clear he plans to stay in the race. >> there's no question his competitors want him to drop out because he's beating all but one. we bring in anna navarro and mr. john avalon, both cnn contributors. beautiful to have you both, thank you for being here. i'll start with you, anna. here is the question. is this new and more or is this just more of the same? how do you think this plays politic politically? >> it's certainly new and more for voters in new york and people that watch it develop on tv. perception wise it's new and more and in politics what matters is perception. he has a recurrent problem. there's a huge difference between a one-time occurrence and recurrence going on after he had been caught. this tells you this guy has a problem. >> also you have another timing this looks politically expedient for somebody, mr. avalon, that it comes to the polls hi
but indicated i've been honest throughout this entire process. his main defense has just been sort of that we're all fixated on this date of resignation from congress but that wasn't actually important to him and his wife and their sort of internal process. >> bill: what's he been doing for the last couple of days, just out there campaigning faiz nothing happened? >> yeah. he's had a public schedule. he's done events. you know i'm sure he's eager to move back to policy. what's said when he initially took off in may was you know, okay, i'm going to answer some questions. but i want to focus on issues. but i think this time it is a little bit different in that sort of -- he answered some questions about the scandal. it dissipated. frankly, he's become a regular candidate. and now questions about why frankly on the timeline here. >> bill: what do you hear from people that you're talking to? people in the street. i saw one poll late yesterday that showed him still up a couple of points. what are the readings? >> well, you know, as far as the poll numbers go, we're not really going to have an indi
." and we're joined by juana summers who covers defense issues for politico pro. welcome back to the studio. >> thanks for having me back. >> bill: nice to see you. bradley manning, not guilty on the most serious charge. but guilty on what? 19 others? >> absolutely. he was found guilty on a variety of other lesser charges. while aiding the enemy does carry a life sentence that he will avoid, he could still in jail for as many as several hundred years depending on how the sentencing phase goes. that's expected to be a very lengthy process. >> bill: so that was news to me, by the way. i thought the judge today was just going to say okay, here's how much time you get, dude. but no. this is another whole trial, right? >> it is. it is a very long process. appeals by bradley manning and his lawyers could go on for years. one of those things that shows and underlies the different between military court-martial and the civilian system you and i are used to dealing with. >> bill: they'll bring in witnesses from both sides? >> that's the case. >> bill: they'll argue for 10 years or 20 years or no tim
and relatively transparent defenses for what this is about, which is people love sex, they love talking about sex, they love talking about other people's sex often more than their own sex lives. any time you can move from the real issues in the new york mayoral race, which includes things like public racial profiling rather than private online profiles, and any time you get off the sewer system and on to somebody's texts, obviously the public is interested. the new york voters are interested, so i get why we're talking about it. they're talking about it. but this is not the criteria of how to choose a mayor. the fact that what we've learned now is what we already knew, is that anthony weiner has this part of his life and it has intersecreta intersected with his public life and voters may pull away from him. you've got "the new york times" and "the new york daily news" saying he should be out of the race. you've got the usual mcaur theist mafia trying to bring him down. what do we know? what we learned is what we learned from st. augustine a long time ago. many people say to their lord, to their s
's uncomfortable defense. >> i love him. i have forgiven him. i believe in him. rb and capped off by one of his sexting partners going public with steamy photos on tmz. >> he's responsible for his downfall. >> reporter: despite the calls to step down, he's staying in the race hoping new yorkers grow tired of it all. >> it's not up to you or me, voters make the decision. >> reporter: his biggest challenge is forgiving and forgetting takes time. he's already fallen sharply in the polls. and now with his campaign manager stepping down, he is left to call his own shots. george? >> we'll have more on that. >>> but breaking news in the nsa spy case. we are joined by glenn greenwald, with new reporting on the domestic surveillance program. thanks for joining us. the new reporting zeroes in on one of the most explosive claims made by snowden a few weeks back. let's take a look. >> and i sitting at my desk certainly had the authorities to wiretap anyone from you or your accountant to a federal judge, to everyone the president if i had a personal e-mail. >> now that claim was denied by intelligence offic
. should the united states be primarily concerned with its own defense? do we have to be careful we don't get invaded and two days later say somebody says if we'd only done one thing, but we didn't do it because we're concerned about civil liberties? >> are you asking me? >> i'm asking david. if you come out, what looks like to be an argument and you didn't use that power, you're dead politically in this country if you get attacked. >> chris, i worked 20 feet from the oval office for years and i saw the president, the national security team grapple with a very real threat of attack. and the tools that are there that the nsa provided were important in thwarting some of those attacks. if we hadn't done it, then we would indeed have had more catastrophic kinds of attacks. i think people would have been outraged about it, but i think carly is right. we do have to be careful how we do that. and what the president suggested is that's why we have to have the involvement of all three branches of government. the answer is not to scrap the intelligence gathering that has demonstrably helped keep
on an amendment to defense spending bill that would limit the nsa's authority to secret lit collect the phone records of millions of americans. the amendment being considered would not allow the nsa to collect phone records under the patriot act unless an individual is under investigation. white house press secretary jay carney says ending the program would take away a key tool in fighting terrorism. the head of the nsa made a trip to capitol hill to urge lawmakers to reject the measure. >>> president obama is on air force one flying to the midwest. he will speak in illinois and missouri today to tout his economic policies. kyla campbell is live in our washington, d.c. newsroom with a preview of the president's speech targeting republicans. >> reporter: yes, pam. the white house says that's one of three main goals with the president's economic talks. president obama wants to refocus the political conservation on a still- recovering economy, lock in his economy on turbulent times and warn republicans to not create a crisis this fall. the gom is threatening to make passing a budget difficult. t
's being unfairly treated. >> michael: what is his defense now? >> even if you don't agree with what bradley manning did he's facing up to two decades in jail no matter what the outcome of this trial is. his argument is that he never intended to aid any enemy. there is no evidence that he actually ever did. there are reports that the government made with the c.i.a. the state department, damage assessments, and they all concluded that wikileaks really didn't create much damage. it was embarrassing to the government but there was no harm. yet the government is going ahead with this draconian charge, and it will make it difficult for reporters to report on this information. >> michael: you say this trial has set a dangerous precedence for journalist. >> the aiding the enemy statute is potentially dangerous. all the experts agree this will have huge implications for future whistle blowers. a great example is bob woodward, america's most famous journalist--second. >> michael: good correction. >> he had a book that came out a few years ago and osama bin laden before he died recommended it
the secrets with the enemy. the defense claimed manning first set out to reveal abuses by the u.s. military in iraq. in a pretrial statement to the court, manning admitted he leaked this classified video of an apache helicopter attack in iraq that killed a number of insurgents and two innocent civilians and said he was troubled by the american crew joking about the killings. >> the most alarming aspect of the video to me, however, was seemingly delightful bloodlust that they appeared to have. for me, this seems similar to a child torturing ants with magnifying glasses." >> reporter: wikileaks owner julian assange says their owners will fight the conviction on the charges. >> it's a serious abuse, and it will mean the end of national security journalism in the united states as we know it. >> reporter: and legal experts predict manning's convictions will have a chilling effect on future leakers. >> the government is very, very serious about protecting the status of classified information, and people who disseminate it are playing with fire. >> all right. >> that was nbc's jim miklaszewski rep
. another line of defense is they scoop up tons but it's okay because they have a lot of rules about it. second there are questions about whether there have ever been any violation. with today's declassified information, can you shed any light on what these violations on americans' privacy were? >> i can't get into those details, but again i will try to add some context. first, those violations at the intelligence community were violations of court orders, jake. so when you hear something say there aren't any violations we point to that one specifically. in my view didn't fully portrayed the extend of the problems. >>> all right. senator ron wyden, we've been talking about this issue for weeks, we've wanted you as a guest, and we'll continue to try to get you on the show -- >> we'll do it again. >> thank you, senator. >>> coming up, move over joe camel. energy drinks are being accused of intentionally marketing to children. is this stuff even safe for your kids to drink. >>> later, have you had your daily dose of propaganda today? no? you might want to start fol
